Hi. My name is Steve. I have some microcontroller experience with AVR, Stickos and Arduino and have recently bought an STM32F4 discovery kit as I am interested in its DAC , DSP and audio capabiiteies.
I have some experience of C and am always learning but am a total noob to ARM and STM products.
I was hpoing someone could point me in the right direction, or give me a little info on what the DMA is/does and how the STM32F4 peripherals use it...I know it stands for direct memory access but this is about all. Could anyone give me an idiots primer into DMA??
Any help seriously apprecxiated.

p.s I am using windows XP and have Atollic, Coocox coide and Keil MDK installed.
I have got them all working and like coocox & Keil so far....
Cheers!
